A. Like J.D. Salinger, Thomas Pynchon has chosen
B. Like J.D. Salinger, Thomas Pynchon's choice has been
C. As J.D. Salinger, Thomas Pynchon has chosen
D. As had J.D. Salinger, Thomas Pynchon's choice has been
E. J.D. Salinger's choice, as Thomas Pynchon's, has been

Answer choice B is incorrect because it compares a person with a choice

Answer choice C is incorrect for using As salinger implying that salinger is the same person as thomas.

Answer choice E, wrong comparison and the actual sentence talks about Thomas.
